Mowing Roster 2011

Valley R/C Model Club Mowing Roster 2011


Call Steve Luchaco 607-857-3244 with questions or comments.

Please check oil before starting mower and add if needed. (in shed on shelf)

Provide own gas for mowers except gas/oil mix for weed trimmer (in shed in gallon metal can).

Check tire air (pump in shed).

Report any machine problems to Steve – spare belts shed. Mowers have new blades.

Mowing notes: Mow main runway and smooth areas with mowers at low setting. In perimeter and rough areas raise blade as needed and beware of stumps & rocks. Use trimmer to keep area neat. Do not mow grass at the road end of the runway low. This is left high as a buffer between the runway and the fence/road. Same for the race car track end of the runway, leave a buffer of high grass. Preferred Mowing Day is Thursday thru Saturday morning to have the field ready for the week-end. We will need to mow weekly from May thru the end of July, then bi-weekly thru September.


SAFETY FIRST when using all equipment !

Consider the flying field as made up of 2 sections:

1 – The main section is the part from the safety fence East out 150’ towards the woods.

2 – The second section is from the safety fence West back to the woods and out across the runway to the East.

It will save time, fuel, and mower wear if we only mow part of section 2 every time the field is mowed. The goal is to only mow what is needed and not let any of the grass get too high between mowings.

If unable to take your turn please find a replacement team THANK YOU !
